The Wall Street Journal:

“In 2003, [Michael] Madigan agreed to a plan by then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich to borrow $10 billion for state pension contributions.

Those decisions, coupled with investment losses and early-retirement packages, left the state with a mountain of debt and unmet pension obligations.”
